Fields of interest: 
climate dynamics, climate change, hydrological cycle

My research interests fall under the broad heading of climate dynamics.  Currently, I am working to better understand i) the dynamic and thermodynamic controls of the atmospheric water cycle in present-day and future climates, and ii) the atmosphere/ocean effects of annular mode/North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) variability.
